Dog Photo Challenge ~ Orange

This week’s photo challenge is all about including the colour orange!  

It’s the colour of joy, warmth, enthusiasm, change and, of course, autumn.  

It’s a great natural outdoorsy colour, a popular one for dog toys & accessories, and a great vibrant colour to include in photos with your best friend.

This Week’s Theme: ORANGE

The colour orange radiates warmth and happiness.  It combines the physical energy of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.  Now doesn’t that sound fitting for many dogs – energetic and cheerful!  

If you have a dog with an orange coloured coat (or tan!) that makes it pretty easy to participate.  

If your dog is a different colour though you can still join the fun!  Find a orange background – a lawn covered with fallen leaves or a painted wall for example.  Or perhaps incorporate some orange toys, props or accessories – a nice bow tie, a ball used for fetch or their favourite teddy bear!

These are just a few ideas and we’re sure you will think of many more.  And, as always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively.  We can’t wait to see your orange inspired photos this week.

Some ‘ORANGE’ Inspiration

In these ‘orange’ inspired photos we have:

Top: Our border collie Summer when she was a puppy visited a redwood forest on her first holiday away.  Here she is amongst the beautiful orange foliage.  

Middle: Japanese Spitz Keiko and Siberian Husky Bowie are gorgeous amongst the fallen orange leaves of autumn.

Golden Retriever Indi has a gorgeous golden orange coat.  Her smile is gorgeous too!

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lemmie and Hungarian Viszla Safi both have gorgeous orange coats.

Bottom: Photographed Border Collie Rosie in front of this incredible wood wall that we found – it was just new so the cut wood was a beautiful orange-brown!
